The Windom Pirates punched their ticket to the Region 13C Tournament Friday night, using a fast start to claim a 14-2, seven-inning win at Ruthton. The Pirates won the first-round First Nite/Gopher League playoff series two games to none.

Windom got on the board in the top of the first, scoring on an Alex Fink RBI double.

The Pirates blew the game open in the second, scoring six runs. Alex Borsgard drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, two runs scored when Sam Huska reached on an error and Fink blasted a three-run home run, giving the Pirates a 7-0 lead.

The Pirates tacked on four more runs in the top of the third. Huska hit a two-run single. Jack Mellstrom and Fink followed with RBI singles.

Windom added a run on a Conner Redman RBI single in the fourth, then took a 14-0 lead in the fifth on a Mellstrom RBI single and a double play groundout.

Ruthton scored its only two runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Fink led the Pirates with three hits and five RBI in the win. Mellstrom added three hits and two RBI. Huska and Redman had two hits each.

Kobe Lovell earned the pitching win, allowing two runs on three hits in six innings of work. He walked three and struck out four.

The Pirates will learn their Region 13C playoff fate Monday when the remaining eight teams in the field are seeded. First-round best-of-three series will begin Wednesday.
